Admittedly, wheel sealants and wheel protector products aren’t glamorous or interesting. Nevertheless, they do go a long way to keeping your wheels cleaner for longer. In turn, clean wheels go a long way in maintaining the appearance of your car.

Wheel sealants and wheel protectors can generally be used on many, if not most kinds of wheels and work by creating a clear non-stick layer on wheels that help prevent brake dust and dirt from accumulating on them. They can be applied in different ways, namely as an aerosol spray or as a paste. Either way, it’s a simple addition to the car cleaning procedure that saves you time in the long run.
